Big Pussy, Ben Affleck and Rosie O'Donnell in the bright glare of The Foxlight.

He's been swimming with the fishes, but he'll be cooking fishes next season - or something like that. Vincent Pastore, who played Big Pussy on The Sopranos, will have a guest spot on the new NBC show, Emeril. Pastore tells TV Guide that he wants his own sitcom. Pastore says he told NBC that, if they want to make him an offer he can't refuse, he'll have no choice but to accept.

One of the casulaties of Ben Affleck's rehab is an endorsement deal he had with Boston Beer. They've decided a guy with an alcohol problem is not the best spokesman. Also, remember that Miami-to-New York drive Affleck took a few months back in a Ferrari for a magazine?  It was basically a pub crawl. Affleck admits he was hammered the whole time.

Rosie O'Donnell is talking about her emotional breakdown. She says that, at her lowest point, she took events like Columbine personally. And that's why she took on Tom Selleck so vehemently. She still believes in gun control - but understands that everyone doesn't feel the same way. She also says she had a moment of empathy for the Houston woman who drowned her children - but her own kids helped turn her around.
